My mom came down from NY this week to help me with the kids so I wouldn't have to break the "no lifting more than 10 lbs" policy. She took my little girl back to NY for the week and next we will go up to visit and get her. So tonight my hubby worked and it was me and Logan (all 17 lbs). I had to lift him several times throughout the night and I could feel a little pressure on my stomach. I will have to be smart and really limit how often I pick him up.
I haven't been doing too great on the liquids today. It def takes a lot of thought to drink 64oz and get 70g of protein. I've been mainly doing crystal light, water, ice pops and protein shakes. I won't be doing eggs for a very long time as made clear from the post below! I am excited to get the puree stage next week.
Ya know what I really hate?....taking all the required pills. The multi vitamin, the calcium, the acid blocker, my allergy meds. I am not of fan of having to break the pills apart. They get all jagged and hurt more when they go down.
I called my dr to get my appt set for my 1 month. I have heard that the 3rd and 4th week are pretty challenging due to not feeling much restriction, so when the lady gave me an appt for 5 weeks post op, I was thinking NO WAY! So I asked if she could look a week earlier and she magically found me an appointment exactly 4 weeks post op. I am hoping to lost 20 lbs by my first appt.
Jake has been really helpful with the kids. He is pretty much the grumpiest person in morning that ever lived so for him to get up with the kids every morning and be putting them to bed every night, he gets the Golden Daddy Award. We both are not morning people and love to stay up late, so in the summer when I have off of school we alternate who gets up in the morning. It is really gonna suck when he gets a Big Boy job (he just graduated in May) and we can't just be together all the time in the summer. I love love love being with my husband just running errands, shopping and cuddling up.
Anyway....The scale tonight was 204 lbs. I am pretty excited to see the numbers still going down. My clothes felt better. Jake hasn't gotten any action yet.(geez...give me a week to heal here!)
Thanks again to all my followers for um....well....following! As a thank you, here is a picture of my cute little boy! He is 6 months and he learned to crawl and stand a few weeks back and is quite pleased with himself.
